Texas Southern University Law School students staged a walkout following the resignation of a senior staff member.
ABC13 obtained the resignation letter of the law school associate dean of academic affairs, Shaundra Lewis.
In the three-page resignation letter from Lewis' dean position, she accuses some of her fellow colleagues of attempting to prevent the re-accreditation of the law school.
Lewis explained that some of her fellow staff members said this would be detrimental to student learning, which caused TSU to reverse course and return to the five-day workweek. She explains this caused her to resign, but she will remain a faculty member.
